“In my Stretford Art Collective studio space I create hand illustrated greetings cards using recycled buttons. I also work alongside clients to create custom cards and prints with requested memories and designs including bespoke wedding invitations. I also produce illustrated bags, mugs, stationery, jewellery and accessories.
I design and create copper lamps and I’m currently experimenting with other copper objects and forms; Having become very interested in sustainability I’ve begun working with discarded and waste materials. Sustainability throughout my work is a vision and goal for the future.
Outside of the studio I continue to work freelance in television production and post-production, wedding photography, make-up artistry, film-editing and animation. I have just finished training in plumbing”. – Becky Moore.
